NEW YORK. A Manhattan lawsuit that claimed a man lost Jean Baptiste Camille Corot’s 1857-58 “Portrait of a Girl” while drunk is to be withdrawn, according to reports. It was revealed Wednesday that one of its owners, Tim Doyle, had a conviction for art theft, the Daily News reported. Doyle co-owned the painting with Kristyn Trudgeon. She had sued a courier who claimed he couldn’t remember what happened to the $1.35 million painting after a night of drinking.
